correspondent candy crowley will tell us why washington can't find a middle ground. both president obama and governor romney promised better days ahead, but when will this economy finally start working again for the middle class? the middle class is stuck in the middle. ♪ here i am stuck in the middle with you ♪ >> the classic song was from 1973, but today's middle class is stuck as two political parties run away from the center. what the middle class needs is a deal. >> let's make a deal! >> to grow jobs and to fix the fiscal cliff. senators are talking about starting to talk. how close are they? those of you in the middle are stuck between a near-term fiscal cliff calamity and a long-term debt disaster. one means a recession and lost jobs. ignoring the other means slower growth and lost jobs. it will take real statesmanship, washington, to tackle both at the same time. meantime, it's the jobs right in the middle that disappear, and majority of jobs created make just 13 bucks an hour or less. you're stuck in the middle of closing arguments of an election year, but the two words that
after the governor. >> he now says he is going to replace obama care and assure all the good things that are in it where going to be in there and you don't have to worry. and at some point i think the american people have to ask themselves is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they are too good? >> bill: you see, romney looking right at him the whole time with, you know a neutral expression on his face. >> bill: neutral? >> a little disdain. it's not like. >> he has to get rid of that smirk. they both need to improve neutral expression. >> bill: no smirking. >> people think of it as arrogant when he smirks like that. it's not a good expression to hold. >> bill: i agree. >> concern. i'm listening to you, not the huh, that silly smirk that he does. >> bill: i need your advice. tomorrow when i go out on stage to meet jon stewart. >> yeah. >> bill: my instinct is to get him in a hammer lock right away. physically pummel him so i he would be off his game for the rest of the debate. would that be good body language. >> that won't work out
is on. the race between president obama and governor mitt romney increasingly tightening this weekend. and since wednesday night's big debate as the latest jobs report. and just this morning, governor romney already getting in some more prep time for next week's debate. and before hitting the campaign trail, in the key battle ground state of florida. and senator-- the national correspondent john roberts joins us live now from the city apopka. and the governor is scheduled to attend a rally. tell us about it. >> we've got a little bit after florida thunderstorm popped up and expected to be gone by the time the governor hits the stage here, and travelling on the i-4 corridor where elections are won and lost in florida and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back
, here's how it looks. >> we welcome president obama and governor romney. (applause) (laughter) (applause) thank you and good night. >> stephen: pretty much captures it. now of course a lot of belly acres on the left, incidentally bellyaching not covered under romney's plan, insisted on paying attention to the words they said, and pointed out that mitt changing almost all of his positions could backfire. like this from npr. romney goes on offense. pays for it in first wave of fact checks. oh no! mitt could lose the fact checking race. quick, some fact checker should research how many electoral college votes the swing state of fact checkelsvannia has. because-- because i think-- i think-- i think it's even fewer than north i don't give a [bleep]. folks, the fact check mafia is just a bet because romney won by pivoting. exactly like his senior advisor eric fernstrom said he was going to do after the primary. >> everything changes. if is almost like an etch-a-sketch, you can kind of shape it up-- shake it up and we start all over again. >> stephen: and everyone agrees last night mitt was pre
, that has to be the last word. >> excellent. >> you've got it, toby, all right. and what president obama and governor romney did agree on, at the first presidential debate. >> quite extraordinary. >> successful. >> wonderful, good programs, creator, there's no doubt about it. >> and it's terrific, genius, commitment. >> done a great job. >> of course they were talking about who else, neil cavuto, at fox business, star-studded debate coverage. and the vice-presidential debate 4 p.m. ap 8 p.m. on fox business and off to the final two presidential debates. the election is not red or blue, it's about your green and no one is on it, but neil. and one word not uttered at the debate someone on the cavuto on business gang should have all taxpayers worrying at the bottom of the hour and up next, the d.c. solutions for the record breaking gas price, that could bring even more pain when you fill up the tank. @c@f? >> good morning, everyone, fox news alert. leon panetta weighing in on the consulate attack in libya moments ago. >> we're doing everything possible to make sure that we go after
since the democratic convention when clinton came to the rescue of obama. has governor romney now dispelled that shadow of clinton, yes or no? >> clinton made an argument that nobody could have done better than obama but mitt romney in that debate suggested, and i think he convinced a lot of people, i can do bert. >> what do you think, eleanor? did he dispel the -- >> romney won on style, but he still has problems with substance. the american people still don't know how his arithmetic is going to come out, and president clinton framed that argument in the best way possible. it's a question of arithmetic and that's still the has romne shadow of clinton? >> yes, i think he has. i think he showed himself to be presidential, really presidential, and he had something that we haven't seen in a long time. a mastery of both the substance and the facts of a case that he was making. he did it brilliantly in this debate. >> why don't you go to work for romney since you work for obama? >> i'll see what happens going forward. too early to tell, john. >> really. >> absolutely. i've been a demo
. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? ncy?eporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. negh unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today he mentioned the drop not once but twice starting in virginia. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. ( cheers and applause ) more americans entered the work errce, more people are getting jobs. >> reporter: around steady rain in cleveland where president esida shared a coat with the supporter who introduced him, he made it clear to a crowd of 9,000 that he understands there's still a long way to go. >> there are too many friends and neighbors who are still looking for work. any many families who are still struggling to pay the bills. and they were struggling even
president obama and governor romney visited virginia. >> reporter: the jobs report took away one of governor romney's signature stump speech about how long the unemployment rate has been above eight percent. >> the reason its come down this year is because more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> tom: today's report actually showed people returned to the labor force in september. it's the first time since last october the unemployment rate fell while more people entered in the workforce. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy and score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> tom: only one more monthly job report remains before election day. and with such high stakes, former general electric c.e.o. jack welch stirred up controversy with this comment on twitter, accusing president obama's re-election campaign of essentially manipulating the report. - quote - unbelievable jobs numbers...these chicago guys will do anything..-end quote. the bureau of labor statistics is where the dat
, they say romney was a very good governor, that they could work with him. maybe obama saw this because the significance of the last 3 1/2 years in the obama presidency is there was never cooperation or rarely cooperation. no or very few bipartisan agreements. the only time they did something was when they brought joe biden in to negotiate with the republicans. so maybe obama sensed that. but i don't know -- it's worthy to investigate. >> sean: yeah. one theory i have, i want to ask you one more question about your theory. i would argue, $6 trilon in debt, very hard to explain away. i would argue that, you know when 2012 economically is worse than 2011, which was worse than 2010, unemployment in 2012, fewer jobs in this year than last year and the year before. things are trending down. obviously, that's troubling for the president in terms of trying to defend it. but back to your theory, if he was so bad that there something else going on, that could be troubling in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong. you know, bill clinton, as critical as i was during monica le
. sometimes, it takes a one-on-one situation, where have you governor romney, barack obama, standing there. no filters. they are going to have an honest conversation and debate. clearly, the president did a miserable job. one of the reasons he did a miserable job, besides the fact he didn't show up is that he can't retreat to any facts that are good for his side. i think charles just mentioned it a little while ago on your show, which is, if you don't have the facts on your side, it is very, very difficult to stand there in front of 60 million people and defend what you are doing, where you are going. you can't whine about everything because you have been in the president the whole time. >> sean: you know, now, the republican party put out what you call the big fail. you point out what you believe are 12 specific lies. number 1, the president's plan to cut the deficit by $4 trillion, that he would return america to tax rates under clinton that the obama medicare says romney's medicare plan would cost $6 million. you can see the whole list here >> sean: you say none of this is true? >> what
to repeal obama -- >> okay, now, governor romney you are well over the two-minute allotted -- >> jim, i still have 30 seconds here on -- >> if -- >> jim, jim -- just politely going to hush you up a bit. >> going to keep you. >> na, na, na. >> respect the governor -- >> jim, do us all a favor and just -- i think it's a little weird that you're here still. you can just leave and do whatever you want. >> no, i'm the moderator here. >> jim -- >> hold on now. >> i'm going to have to ask you to step down, okay? ja, ja, ja. no. >> that's just a noise. >> jim, jim, jim, would you shut the [ bleep ] up. >> that was a facsimile i think. more from the debate aftermath. the big bird nonsense continues. how did the former gop candidates feel about the mitt romney pledge to stop funding for pbs if elected president? first, rick santorum last night on cnn. >> would you kill big bird? >> well, as a matter of fact, i voted to kill big bird in the past. it doesn't mean i don't like big bird. you can kill things and still like them. maybe to eat them, i don't know. >> you can kill things but still like th
, president obama spoke for minutes longer than governor romney in the wednesday night debate. guess what he wasted? nearly a minute of that time during it. coming up next week, an all-star lineup. brit hume joins us and she will we were come right back lou: there were times in the debate the president looked lost without his teleprompter. does feed put together a compilation of every time the president stuttered. >> what we have said is ah ah ah ah ah but what we have also said it is ah. lou: he wasted almost one minute on ah and staring. harry reid is something else. levelling another false accusation against governor romney. in july he claimed romney did not detect this 10 years. that turned out, he miseries a bit -- misrepresented the reality "romney staff he told he would the staff not to honor deportation exemptions. actually the boston globe said the opposite. romney will honor the executive order for young illegal immigrants. when it senator harry reid staff was called out they would not retract the statement. they just blamed the quotation marks on of a typo. dirty harry. the enable

. romney are statistically tied there. according to our latest poll, mr. obama leads governor romney 47% to 46. the president has dropped two points since september. governor romney has gained one. >>> and with its ten media markets and diverse population, florida's a complicated and pricey state. joining us with more is mark ka pewto, political writer for "the miami herald," and back with us is anne kornblut from "the washington post." thanks to both of you. >> thank. >> mark, your newspaper also reported the race between president obama and mitt romney is at a virtual tie. here is how florida voted back in 2008. democrats won in the central and southern urban centers. republicans in the rural north and central. will the 2012 map look the same? >> oh, pretty much so. that's what the polling is showing currently. you know, southeast florida is rather liberal. florida's kind of an upsidedown state. the farther north you go, the deeper in the south you are. so the republican candidate does well in the north of florida and the democratic candidate generally does well in the south. and it's

and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president and it reduces him from the presidential level. and it makes him look petty and it makes hymn him look not like his greatest asset is that people say he's a nice guy who has been doing his best. he gets into that mode and he risks his most priceless asset. but brit hume's point. he has a tough, almost impossible record to defend, i mean, in terms of was it a good economy? it's been the worst economy we have had in the lifetime of most american and it is numbers are there. so how does he defend it if romney keeps smiling and going after him? >> greta: he has to communicate to the voters and talk to them. i think that's his strength. >> what does he communicate? he can get the crowdsil. he has to be able -- >> greta: he has a ground game. >> if you elect me, it's going to be far better in the next four years than the last four year
say, governor romney, really, obama should be favored. he's good at that format, moving around. but how does he attack romney? they will tell him to do it. they are talking about bain capital, that reduce it's. >> greta: i thought he was smart not to do that -- he wants to look presidential. he doesn't want his fingerprints on petty and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president and it reduces him from the presidential level. and it makes him look petty and it makes hymn him look not like his greatest asset is that people say he's a nice guy who has been doing his best. he gets into that mode and he risks his most priceless asset. but brit hume's point. he has a tough, almost impossible record to defend, i mean, in terms of was it a good economy? it's been the worst economy we have had in the lifetime of most american and it is numbers are there. so how does he d
on the debate which goes to that point. both candidates, president obama and governor romney said good things about simpson bowles. neither one embraced it. the other thing that happened we've had some creeping candor going on here in terms of the structural debate, structural deficit situation. governor romney made it clear that he's going to have rate cuts but not tax cuts. he's talking about revenue mutual reduction in change. on the other side president obama, this was a dog that didn't bark in effect because usually democrats talk about medicare and social security in a way that indicates they would never do anything about it. president obama to his credit did not do that. so i took some encouraging spin during the debate. >> we're encouraged. >> something that congress can build on. that may give the people in the congress working together a little more ammunition. >> very good. all right. thank you, senator. good to see you as always, senator sam nunn. john king as always. good to see you. and christine romans. coming up next big promiraculous small returns. can political leaders creat

romney said he will fix it by raising the retirement age by younger americans. president obama said bad idea. rich, who has the idea right. >> governor romney has it right. fdr proposed sussocial security. average american lived in the 60s and now high 70s. we have the biggest population bulge. baby boomers just going in social security now. and so the idea that we can't follow the president's own simpson-bowles commission and raise it by two years is ridiculous. >> but john, we were made a promise. >> absolutely. i respectfully disagree. there is a dirty little secret of social security that we have no legal right to the accounts we are paying into. the government will say we'll give you what you want when we want is offensive . for individuals who are not socialist and want to own their retirement. they should be allowed out and no longer be a liability on the federal government for a system that is cratering under its own weight. >> mark, you support mitt romney on this? >> well, i hate to say this, but i do support raising the age and i think that it is inevitable to do that for the
